Rik Van Nutter stars as a newspaper man who is on a space journey with astronauts to get a story, and they treat him as a "parasite" as one of the crew members refers to him.
All seems to be going well until an runaway spaceship called Alpha Two enters the solar system with it's photon generators emitting enough heat to destroy the Earth.
After many ways to stop the ship has failed it falls on the reporter, named Peterson to try and get aboard the ship, disarm the generators and escape before suffocating from lack of air.
This is not too bad of a film, but it has fallen thru the cracks and has only appeared on numerous 50 movie sets and some companies like Sinister Cinema. This isn't a knock against any of these companies kind you.
I enjoyed seeing this again, and if you haven't seen it in a while check it out.
